“Great View from Restaurant”
Reviewed November 14, 2011

Good food and an unbeleivable view of the two finishing holes on the golf course. Sit outside if seating is available.

Reviewed October 22, 2011

Two beautiful layouts - challenging and scenic at the same time. One of the nicer golf options in the area.

“Nice Course Overall”
Reviewed September 2, 2011

it was a nice course, but in comparison to a few others we were privileged to golf, we found the greens VERY dry but the fairways were immaculate.

“FIRECLIFF - scenery & wildlife, rather than houses on every fairway”
Reviewed July 6, 2011

After 5 previous rounds in the area, we were getting tired of residence-lined fairways, and the Firecliff Course was just what the doctor ordered. We had a fairly stiff breeze the day we played (steady 25mph), and the two "old gorillas" we played with wanted to play the Blue Tees - I should have stuck with the Whites (so should they!), but no big deal.
We booked a Twilight Rate through Standby Golf, and it was good value. Great scenery, with lots of somewhat natural desert areas alongside the holes (in which to lose balls in - bring lots, especially if there is a big wind). They had unique bunker-rake holders, I had never seen before (stored rakes underground - neat!) Beautiful new clubhouse with a great view off the patio, a good spot for an after-round bite and drink. Lots of wildlife (never seen so many rabbits, but they weren't a hindrance to our round). TIP - Don't try the blues (or blacks - Slope 138) unless you are a single digit handicapper. We had a real good day at a beautiful course - a nice way to wrap up our California desert vacation.
